Dear Family & Friends
For me, autumn seems to be the saddest season of the four we get in a year...but saying that...the cheerful perennial flowering plant - Chrysanthemum, flowers at this time of the year. I have so many of these plants lined in our garden and it does bring in a lot of cheers when most of the other plants starts to go into deep sleep.

So, this year I planted more chrysanthemum, adding a few more new colour varieties too. I propagated a lot of the old ones to line up every nooks in our garden as well. If nothing else, next year will surely be a cheerful autumn season when they all come into bloom!

The man in our house has plan to upgrade the little hut in one corner of our garden for next year. Perhaps we will turn it into a summer kitchen?! With this in mind, I decided to change and upgrade the garden area leading to this little hut too. I will put a new pathway in the middle of this garden, under the cover of the lined grape vines. It should look good...

There were three bushes of gooseberries in this area where the new pathway goes. We had to relocate them to a more sunny location, in between fruit trees in our newly created mini orchard. We were so happy with the outcome. Out of the three bushes, we managed to divide it into nine more gooseberry plants:)

There are many division and propagations to do at this time of the year. It is the best way to fill up the garden with plants without spending a single penny!
We find gardening a very satisfying job...like my husband says: 'Annie lives in the garden!' If weather permits, I surely would! For now, our winter season has already arrived. The first snow of this season has already poured in...nothing much I could do. Hope you still can find some happy gardening days where you are!
